Two new methods are available for use as part of the Emissions Reduction Fund:
Applications for new or to vary existing emissions reduction projects using this method can now be made to the
Clean Energy Regulator. More information on how to apply can be found on Want to participate in the Emissions Reduction Fund.
reducing greenhouse gas emissions from fertiliser in irrigated cotton method provides for emissions reductions in irrigated cotton production, achieved by increasing the efficiency—and reducing the emissions intensity—of synthetic nitrogen fertiliser use. Activities to achieve emissions reductions can improve lint yield without a proportional increase in nitrogen fertiliser application rate, and include changing the rate, timing, method and type of nitrogen fertiliser application. The method applies only to cotton crops grown under irrigation, where nitrous oxide emissions can be directly related to the rate of fertiliser nitrogen used on the cotton crop.
reforestation and afforestation 2.0 method streamlines the earlier methods released for use under the Carbon Farming Initiative in 2013. It sets out the detailed rules for implementing and monitoring projects that sequester carbon by establishing and maintaining trees that have the potential to attain a height of at least 2 metres, and a crown cover of at least 20% and on land that has previously been used for agricultural purposes in any part of Australia.
